Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic insists the Premier League champions will not go into Sunday's showdown with troubled Liverpool feeling over-confident.
Liverpool are currently enduring their worst run of form for 22 years after suffering four defeats in a row and United are favourites to win at Anfield, live on Sky Sports 1 & HD1.
The Red Devils head into the contest on the back of a 1-0 win away to CSKA Moscow which maintained the club's 100 per cent record in the UEFA Champions League.
In contrast, Liverpool are struggling to qualify for the knock-out phase, while losing to United on Sunday would surely kill off their domestic title dreams for another season.
Yet despite the problems afflicting Rafa Benitez's side, with Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres battling to be fit, Vidic says United will not be complacent.
The Serbia international said: "It is not good to have too much confidence, but it is good to have won before the game against Liverpool.
"We believe in the squad and each other and this is important."
Vidic made a successful return from injury against CSKA on Wednesday, playing the full 90 minutes of the win in the Russian capital.
United now look well on course for a place in the last 16 of the Champions League with the victory putting them five points ahead of second-placed Wolfsburg.
"It is perfect - three games, three wins," Vidic said. "We can breathe at the moment.
"It was important we kept the clean sheet also because in the last few games we have lost too many goals.
"I now think we need to keep going and build on this, get more clean sheets and confidence for the games to come.
"We have some big games in the next few weeks and that was a good start."
